Abstract : The thesis considers the influence of four secondary effects on the analysis of a simple ell-shaped piping structure when it is uniformly heated. The four effects are: (a) axial deformation, (b) shearing deformation, (c) beam-column effect, and (d) difference between arc and chord. They are usually neglected in a piping flexibility analysis.
